saw the pictures chris christie and president obama toured the storm-ravaged coast of new jersey yesterday. christie knows who was there to help when new jersey needed it. so now the big question is christie going to stay with the man he had previously endorsed or will he throw his substantial weight behind president obama? don't hold your breath. okay. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, here she is with a current news update today lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. campaign schedules are getting back on track today as romney heads to virginia and president obama has a very busy day ahead of him. first, he starts off the day in green bay, wisconsin for a rescheduled event that he had to cancel tuesday to deal with hurricane sandy. then he is off to nevada, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for t

's praised him so e fusively and that's chris christie. they got aboard marine one. administrator fugate was with them. they traveled about an hour. long beach island, ship bottom, seaside heights, seaside heights, in particular, as we have seen from our media helicopters hit particularly hard. the president has landed on the way now to a community center that's sheltered as many as 200 at the worst part of the storm at a place outside of atlantic city. there we expect the president to tour the shelter, helping out those in distress and then make a statement, steve. i think we can expect the president to try to project calm, concern, empathy, authority if you will. what we'll not see the president project is any sort of overt political age toll this. this is all very serious and chris christie by his side as he had all afternoon. >> it's still tore and talk about the tone of the president today, not overtly political. everything is politicized with chris christie who's very emotional in the situation. this is the jersey of his youth be destroyed. >> reporter: right. >> how does the presi
, republican governor chris christie. just six days out from the election. interesting for many reasons and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper wit
hurricane sandy. he was greeted by governor chris christie. and the two men just continued to work on this partnership that they got going when it comes to recovering from this storm. in fact, they've been doing it before the storm hit. now, these were the sites the president saw as he flew over the jersey coastline. image after image of flooded homes, destroyed boardwalks, and washed out roads dominated the president's trip. on the ground, president obama and governor christie visited relief shelters throughout the area. the governor offered this assessment of the president to storm victims. he means what he says. it's important that he is here. christie had more praise later on. >> we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to be able to show the president that personally, had an opportunity to see it and discuss it at length, and going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks and see the president and his concern, the concern all of us have for making sure that things get ba
government makes a big impact in new jersey, where the president tours the state with chris christie. >> it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people have asked us to do. >> new jersey senator bob menendez was with the president today and he joins me live tonight. plus, jonathan alter on why good governance is good politics. e.j. dionne on mitt romney's troubling post-hurricane trouble. dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz on mitt romney's disappearing act. and bob shrum is here tonight, with a brand-new electoral map that will put a smile on democrats' faces. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks, thanks for watching. washington, pay attention. it has taken a life-altering disaster to show the country how our elected officials can work together, regardless of party affiliation. now, they're officials, they're not leaders until they work together, and this is what we're seeing. president obama arrived in new jersey today, to get a closer look at the damage from hurricane sandy. he was greeted by governor chris christie. and the two men just co
and he absolutely means it. >> cenk: but chris christy has an ulterior motive. >> is it too soon to talk about climate change or is it too late to talk about climate change? >> i never imagined that you could see glaciers this big disappearing in such a short time. >> cenk: almost no show outside of current television talking about climate change being related to sandy yesterday with that we're doubling down today. we've got the numbers to prove our case, so stay right here. it's go time. [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> the scariest waves i've ever done. >> literally uprooted. >> you see how they're all piled up one on top of the other. >> the president has been all over there. he deserves great credit. >> we're going to do whatever we can to help you get back on your sheet. >> sharks swimming in the waters around the homes. >> we've got people right now that are having hard times because of this terrible hurricane and your generosity will make a difference. >> the storm surge just lifted up. >> they can't send workers out to make sure the rest of the crane is fastened securely to the building. >>
completely changed. president obama arrives tomorrow. chris christie surveyed the damage from the air and then consoled storm victims on the ground. >> it's a very difficult day. very difficult day. >> the scope of this storm is absolutely stunning. aside from delivering high winds and driving rain, it was also dumping snow on areas of west virginia. the cleanup from sandy has just begun. state and federal officials are urging patience. the full extent won't be known for weeks to come. we have two reports tonight. i'm joined by news correspondent jay gray live in battery park in lower manhattan. also with us is correspondent ron allen who joins us from point pleasant beach, new jersey. mr. gray, great to have you us with tonight. you are right at the heart of the devastation in lower manhattan. how are the people dealing with th that? a lot of people have evacuated, but there are still quite a few down there. >> reporter: it was really interesting o to see how that played out today. i think there's still a stunned silence here. the power is out. the traffic lights are out. there's no
visual endorsement of chris christie. chris christie is obviously not endorsing barack obama in any explicit way, but he said a lot of kind things about the president in the last 48 hours. you have a bunch of centrist kind of pseudo republicans, who knows where they are politically, but the cumulative effect i think is powerful. >> is there obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle. >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort of the campaign insider's zeitgeist, if you will, and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i ge
of the president and chris christie, both of them praising each other yesterday. let me play a little of the back-and-forth. >> there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. but you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. sometimes politicians like it. sometimes they don't. but i say what i feel and what i believe. and i'm just doing the same thing with the president of the united states. so i did pinch myself every day. you know, like when i got on marine one, i'm pinching myself, believe me, you know. sandy and bill christie's son on marine was not exactly what i thought was going to be happening with my life. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> so i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership and partnership. >> so amy, the bottom line is, the hot part of the story today is you've got rush limbaugh and a few other conservatives, they're calling chris christie the greek column. we're not quite sure if that's
and a neighboring barrier island. governor chris christie calls the devastation unthinkable. tuesday he tried to comfort one of the many victims. >> very difficult day. i know. we'll rebuild. we're tough. >> we're tough. >> not far away in seaside heights an incredible sight here. that's a roller coaster partially submerged in the ocean. we're going to have more on that in a moment. >>> first, in new york city the subway system remains crippled after heavy flooding caused what officials say the worst damage in its 108 year history. no one knows when it will be up and running again. >>> let's go back to new jersey. there were countless rescues there and for some the realization that they were no match for mother nature. >> terrible. it was awful. it was the worst thing i ever saw. the waters came down like crazy. we were sorry we stayed. >>> new jersey appears to have taken the brunt. the weather channel's dave malkoff is live for us in toms river, new jersey. one of the hfof the hardest hit. thanks for being with us. what's it look like this morning? >> good morning. you can see where we are
limbaugh says chris christie is fat. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: okay. here is jacki schechner with the news. >> as we're going to wait for official reaction we get a statement from the white house and then we'll hear the president speak. both mitt romney and obama, he is going to start in ohio today, and spending the day in ohio. romney will go to wisconsin first and then head to ohio. he'll be getting a lot of love over the weekend. what is interesting is both candidates have op-eds appearing on cnn.com today. mitt romney's a very routine, it seems to reiterate all of the same stuff. that he will create 12 million new jobs -- 12 million jobs will be created anyway. more of the same. and he has now taken on the idea that he is going to create real change. i can't believe it's not change. he has got real change compared to the president's change. >> stephanie: i thought he was going to call it of course i never said detroit should go bankrupt. >> sure. the president starts out by talking about how we have come together as a nation after this hurricane, and how

what's happening there. this is the podium but moments later chris christie will be briefing his state. chris christie holding a press conference here that we'll bring you live here on cnn. a lot of people weren't expecting a storm this late in the season, and now the rush is on to get supplies. some storms already running low. people looking for bottled water, you are finding empty shelves there. look at that boat. trying to get them out and get them safe. despite mandatory evacuations in areas of new jersey, delaware, some people are bound to stay in their homes as they always do. and we know the answer to that, that's a bad idea, right? with me now, general russell honory, you commanded the military in new orleans as a general there, should people prepare differently for this storm than they do, because there are different elements with this, is there a different preparation for this storm? >> we have gone into this storm for the last few years since katrina to encourage people to have a three day's supply of food and water on hand for an event just like this. >> because usually whe
with the new jersey governor chris christie. the two leaders literally offering shoulders to cry on and words of inspiration and support. >> we'll help you get it all together, all right? i promise. i promise. you're going to be okay. everybody is safe, right? that's the most important thing. we're going to get this whole thing done. >> i can't thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> well, governor romney is on his second official day back on the trail post-sandy. chivalry is dead. at his campaign stop in roanoke, virginia, just last hour, romney was in full attack mode. >> do you want for more years like the last four years? i mean, do you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? do you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> so this hour, we are awaiting a live update from new york city. mayor michael bloomberg on what has been a commuting nightmare in and around the country's biggest city. it's something the likes of which have not been seen since
